I want to achieve two seperate networks.
I want traffic from eth1 to go via eth0
which will link the two LANS and provide

Yes, I have not added any firewalling yet.
This is for my 3 machines at home.
After I am happy with my routing I intend to add
Firewalling rules, VPN and learn about bandwith shaping.

It would be this simple if there was just one LAN.

The issue here is how to route packets from one NIC to another.
Deciding on which networks to use and why is another question.

Won't the default route for eth0 be 192.168.2.6 and won't the default
route for eth1 be 192.168.3.6 ?
I fail to see how "Once the network interfaces come up,
they set the route" will make packets from eth1 will
auto-magiclly go out eth0 as eth1 default route is not eth0 by default.
